     We are grateful for all of the Children and Youth books donated to our Book Drive Thru event. Several hundred books have been donated. On Saturday, June 19th, at 9am in the parking lot of our worship center, 1735 Main Street, the community of Ramona will be invited to come and drive thru to receive books in a gift bag for your children.  Along with receiving the books, everyone will also be encouraged to come and join us in our worship at Spirit of Joy. 
     July 4th is the date set for our reentering to indoor worship at our worship center at 1735 Main Street.  We have had members actively getting the building ready for us to rejoice in our worship together.  The leadership is waiting for their June 21st Council Meeting before they share the final details as to what it means for us to gather again indoors at Spirit of Joy.   Mark this date on your calendar and join us in this wonderful day in the life of the church.
     Graduates....don't forget to let us know you are graduating. We will be recognizing all graduates as part of our Father's Day celebration on Sunday, June 20th.
   Blessings Always,
   Pastor Dan

Hello Again Church Family,
Thank you to everyone who donated youth books for our Christian Book Drive.  We have over 200 books to pass out!  Now we need your help in spreading the word about the book distribution.  This will take place at our Main Street location (1735 Main St.) on Saturday June 19th from 9 till 11 am.  We will be passing out books, book marks, and beach balls to all children age 14 and under who drive through our parking lot during this time.  Please let everyone in town know and invite family and friends to come.
A man of many companions may come to ruin,
    but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

~Prov 18:24

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel - not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.

~Gal 1:6-7
PRAYER LINE REQUESTS: Tori Barlow is our new prayer line coordinator.  If you have a prayer request please contact Tori at or (760) 522-0661.  All prayer requests will now be forwarded through Tori.

Men's Weekly Breakfast continues every Thursday, 8am, at Denny's in Ramona.

We have no specific agenda except to get to know other Christian men in an informal gathering.

We hope you can join us.

We are grateful for all ministries at Spirit of Joy meeting in the back room of our church facility.  Each of our groups can meet currently with a maximum of 8 persons.  Everyone is asked to wear a mask.  Cleaning is requested after each group meets.  We are moving closer to opening up our facility to more opportunities.  Thank you for your dedication to the protocols that have been in place for Spirit of Joy gatherings.
Check out ways you can support Spirit of Joy's ministry!
Safety Procedure for Worship
We encourage your arrival between 8-8:45am for set up.  Everyone is encouraged to wear masks on entry and departure on the church property.  Bring your own chairs, pop-ups, umbrellas, and bottled water.  To insure your safety, we will have a table with prepackaged communion (1st and 3rd Sunday each month) and bulletins (also a digital bulletin is available on your electronic devices).  Please practice social distancing of at least 6ft of separation per family unit.  Trash cans are available to dispose of all trash upon leaving.  If for any reason you are not feeling well, at higher risk, or uncomfortable with attending, we invite you to enjoy the service live-streamed.  If you prefer staying in your car, there will be a designated area for you to do so.
